Control TV with Wiimote

This was a special promo item given out to Nintendo Club Members in Japan. It does not have the hardware of a retail wiimote, it is simply a wii-mote shell with hardware inside to emit infared signals. Does anyone know how this is programmed? Is it a learning remote, or does it have preset codes for each brand of TV like a radioshack universal remote?





With bluetooth drivers for the Wii Remote on the way, it's only a matter of time before people (like me) are actually doing things like this with the real wii-motes. This is just a big tease as to what's to come in the next few months. Stay tuned for more info! Fun stuff is in development...

Wow - I wonder how long it took to be able to sync what he was doing on the Wiimote with what he was doing on the TV remote to make it look that legit...

Come on ppl. Am I the only one who can see that this is BS

Jesse, the light on the bottom is green, a real wiimote has blue lights, and if you randomly push buttons without the Wii on, all four lights blink a couple time.

Did you read my post at all? I said this is not a real wii-mote. It was a limited edition remote given to Nintendo Members.

It's real. It was given out to Platinum members of Club Nintendo in Japan and as swag at some shows IIRC. Google is your friend!
